Wnlker's California Vinri?ir Bitters are a purely Vegetable preparntion, ruada chiefíy from the native bertoB fonndon the lo wer range of theSierra Novada nountains of California, the medicina] proporties of which are extractí "I therefrom witUout the use of Alcohol. The qucBtion Í3 almost dailyasked, "What i tlie cause of the unparalleled success of Vinegab Bitters?" Our answer is, that they remove the cause of disease, and the lntient recovera his health. They are the great blood purifier and a Hfe-giving principie, a perfect Eenovutor and Invigorator of the system. Never before in the history of the world has a medicine been eomponuded po.ssessing the reinarkable qualities of Vineoar Bitters in healing the sick of every disease man is heir to. They are a gentle Purgative aa woll as a Tonic, relieving Congestión or luflammation of the Liver and Visceral Crgans, iu BiliouaDiseases. If men wlll enjoy irood health, let them nse Vineoau Bitteks as a medicine, and avoid Uio use of akohoiic stimulants in every farm, ÏSo LYrsoi! eau fcftkfi Úiem itillers according to directiona, and remain long unwell, provided their lxn are not de. stroyed by mineral poison or other means, and vital orcans wusted bevond repair. Grateful Thoiisaiuls procktïm Vineoar Bitteks the most wonderful Invigorant that ever sustained the sinking hystem. Bilious, Romittont. and Fntermitteilt FeTPrs, -which are so prevalent ituthe ralleys of our great rivers throughout the United States, especially tliose of the Misaissippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkansas, Eed, Colorado, Brazos, Eio Grande, Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Eoanoke, James, and many others, irith their vast tributaries, throughout our entire counti-y during the Summerand Autumn, and remarkably so during seasons of unusual heat and dryness, are invariably nccompanied by extensive derangementa of the stomach and liver, and other abdominal visceira. In their treatment, o purgative, exerting a powerful influence upon these varioua oxgans, ia essentially necessary. There is no cathartic for the purpose equal to Dr. J. Waxkeb's Vinegab Bitteüs, as they will spoedily remove the dark-colored viscid matter with ■which the bowels are loaded, at the same time stimulating the secretions of the Jiver, and generajly restonng tho healthy functions of tho digestiva organs. Dispepsia or Indigestión, Head ache.Pain in theShoulders,Conghs,Tightness of the Chest, Dizziness, Sour Éructations of the Stoinach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the región of the Kidueys, and a hundred other painful symptoms, are the offsprings of Dyspepsia. One bottle will prove a better gnarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertisement. Scrofula, or King's Evil, "White Swellings, Ulcera, Erysipelas, Swelled Neck, Goitre, Scrofulons Inflammations, Indolent Inflammations, Mercurial Affections, Old Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Sore Eyes, etc., etc. In these, as in all other constitutional Diseases, Waleeb's Vinegab Bitteks have shown their gieat curativo powers in the most obstinate and intractable cases. For Infliimmatory and Chronic Klieumatisni, Gout, Bilious, Remittent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of the Blood, Liver, Kidneys, and Bladder, these Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases are caused by Vitiated Blood. Mechauical Diseases.- Persons engaged in Paints and Minerals, such as Plumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and Miners, as they advance in life, are subject to paralysis of the Bowels. To puard against this, take a dose of Nvajjuíü's Vineqab Bitteks occasionally. For Skin üiseases, Eruptions, Tetter, Salt Bheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples, Pustules, Boils, Carbuncles, Bingwonns, Scald Head, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch, Scurfs, Discolorations of the Skin, Huinors and Diseases of the Skin of whatever name "r nature, are literally dug up and carried out of the system in a short time by the use of these Bitters. Pin, Tape, and otlier Worms, lurking in the system of so many thousands, are effectually destroyed and removed. No system of medicine, no vermifuges, no anthehninitics, will free the system froni worms like these Bitters. For Female Complaints, in young or old, married or single, at the davrn of womanhood or the turn of life, these Tonio Bitters display so decided an influence that improvement is soon perceptible. Jaundice.- In all cases of jaundice, rest assured that your liver is not doing ita vork. The only sensible treatment is to promote the secretion of the bile and favor its removal. l'or this purpose use Vinegab Bitiees. Cleause the Vitiated Blood whenever you fiud its impurities bursting through the skin in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sores; cleanse it when you iind it obstructed and sluggish in -the veins; cleanse it when it is f oul ; your feelings will tel] you when. Keep the blood pure, and the nealth of the system will follow. K. II. NcDONALD dt CO., DruggiBts aufl Geueral Agente, San Fraucisco, Califor Dia, aud cor. Waahiutuu and Charltou Sta..
